The Instituto Costarricense de Ferrocarriles (INCOFER) expects regulatory approval before Semana Santa so that it can start rolling the commuter train between San José and Cartago in April.

The railway is waiting on the Autoridad Reguladora de los Servicios Públicos (Aresep) to approve the fare of ¢570 colones (one way) for the trip.

The commuter train will connect the city of Cartago to San José’s east side and will be an excellent transportation option for many sectors, including university students at the UCR and Universidad Latina,.

The INCOFER would not give a specific date when the whistle blowing will be to Cartago, only would say it will be in April.
